    • I support your choice of defenders and the wing forwards
      Anyone from Sadiq or Awoniyi is OK.

        lolz! May be against Sudan.
        Against Egypt the coach must throw in everything. We will need experienced players like Odion, Musa and Iwobi to seek beyond a draw.

    • Greenturf 2 years ago

      Against Egypt you need to add Iwobi to your first team and remove Chukwueze, Iheanacho for Frank Onyeka,Ighalo for Awoniyi,Simon for Ejuke then your team is good to go.
      You need experience to displace or at least get a draw against a good side like Egypt.

    Please you people should stop celebrating mediocre in the names of experience. What’s experience without performance. Ighalo, Musa and Simon don’t have business in the team but for the reason best known to the Coaches, they’re in there and imposed on we fans. None of the trio merit the call up. Now advocating for them to start our first and probably the toughest match in the group is arrant nonsense. If the coach mistakenly start any of them, we will be playing short 1 and to make the matter worst it will be short 3 if all of the said experience players start. They should give room for better,hunger and younger players. Their time has passed.

      Big competition like this is feel with it’s surprises. When competition starts you will start seeing those you believe will carry the team in the name of vibrant and young falling below expectations. Eguavon has done the best mixing the young with experience and 28 man list gave us opportunity to do more so. And I most say this 28 man list is to our advantage, like Ranieri said even if am not in support of him, he said they have many players which is the word he used to stop Dennis from coming for AFCON though am not missing Dennis am just using the word of his coach. If you are not patriotic enough to give everything it takes to represent your country then you are not needed.

      Lol…. Ighalo should only play after we must have qualified for the next round

  • I would play more midfielders with iwobi starting. I would bench chukwueze and start Aribo on the right (he is a goal threat and does better when not played in a defensive midfield capacity). On the left side of the attacks we need someone who is vibrant so I could risk starting Ejuke or simon (for experience). In defence, its Ekong and Omeruah with awaziem on the right and zaidu on the left. If either Ekong or omeruah cant hold their own then awaziem will be pushed to central defence and Aina will take over as right back. In attack we need strength, pace and skill. So I choose big number 9 sadiw umar or ighalo for experience sake.

    …….OKOYE 1…………..

    I like the mood in the camp and even on the platform this evening.

    Our players are doing their best so are the coaching team. We shall support whoever is picked for the all important first game.

    Training starts at 5pm local time which is just few minutes from now and we have been informed that there will be media coverage. Let’s see if there will be videos and pictures from the camp to better inform our suggestions. Good luck Super Eagles!
